If you're a TCU student, social media savvy and love your Horned Frogs, we have the perfect opportunity for you. Just email SuperFrog@tcu.edu.
NEW OFFICE LOCATIONS
With the upcoming Daniel-Meyer Coliseum renovation, several of our offices located in the facility are in the midst of relocating to temporary quarters. Our Frog Club, NCAA compliance, marketing and media relations offices will be moving inside Amon G. Carter Stadium. The Frog Club will be housed in the west side customer service center on the main concourse. Compliance, marketing and media relations will be inside the press box on the second level. We'll have signage posted to assist with finding everyone and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Our ticket office will remain intact through the end of the basketball season, before it moves to the Amon G. Carter Stadium east side ticket booths.
Congratulations to Kyan Anderson on becoming the 32nd player in our men's basketball history to score 1,000 career points! He reached the milestone this past Saturday at Iowa State. Natalie Ventress, Kyan's North Crowley High School classmate, needs just 18 points to become the 13th member of our 1,000-point club in women's basketball. A tip of the cap as well to Latricia Lovings on tying Sandora Irvin's school mark of recording a blocked shot in 62 consecutive games. LT goes for the record tonight at Kansas!

BIG 12 CORNER
As you know, our women's basketball program is playing very well right now with an opportunity for the postseason. While the Big 12 is ranked No. 1 in the nation in RPI for men's basketball, the conference is also very strong on the women's side. The Big 12 is one of just two leagues with six teams in the top 48 of the RPI. Ninety percent of Big 12 teams have a win over a nationally-ranked opponent this season. Fifty percent of Big 12 teams are ranked or receiving votes in the latest AP poll with three schools in the top 13.
MEET THE STAFF
Keegan Ingelido is in her seventh season as an assistant coach with our swimming and diving program. Keegan joined our TCU family in 2007 after serving two seasons as an assistant coach at the University of New Orleans. Keegan works primarily with our female student-athletes and was instrumental in mentoring Sabine Rasch to a 2011 conference championship and a spot at the 2012 NCAA Championships. She also coached men's swimmer Cooper Robinson to TCU's first-ever Big 12 championship as he won the 200 back last year. In the last three seasons, our women have broken 41 school records. Keegan was a standout swimmer at the University of Georgia, earning All-America status 14 times in leading the Bulldogs to three national titles. She was the 1999 national champion in the 200 back. While at Georgia, Keegan was also a member of the 400-medley relay team that broke the world record in 2000. A native of Marietta, Ga., Keegan qualified for the Olympic Trials in 1996 and was a finalist in the 400 IM and 200-back events in 2000. Keegan and her husband, Jonathan, were married in Summer 2011.
NAME THE MOVIE QUOTE
Last Week's Answer: Dan Aykroyd, playing Duke & Duke commodities broker Louis Winthorpe III in Trading Places, said, "He was wearing my Harvard tie. Can you believe it? My Harvard tie. Like oh, sure he went to Harvard."
This Week's Quote: "We're a folk singing group from Salt Lake City."
The Ocean State University (OSU) women's soccer coaches are very excited about their new National Letter of Intent (NLI) signing class. The coaches want to stay in close contact with them to make sure they are getting everything done to finalize the admissions process. Starting on Monday, the assistant coaches will text each of the signees twice a week to send reminders.
Is it permissible for the OSU coaches to text their NLI signees?
Yes. NCAA Bylaw 220.127.116.11.2 states that there shall be no limit on the forms and no restrictions on the publicity of electronically transmitted correspondence sent to a prospective student-athlete (or the prospective student-athlete's relatives or legal guardians) after one of the following events occurs (Adopted: 1/15/11 effective 8/1/11, Revised: 7/31/13): (a.) The prospective student-athlete signs a National Letter of Intent (NLI) or the institution's written offer of admission and/or financial aid; or (b.) The institution receives a financial deposit in response to the institution's offer of admission.
